The City of Bryan has announced a partnership with Service Line Warranties of America (SLWA) to offer the National League of Cities (NLC) Service Line Warranty Program to homeowners. The NLC Service Line Warranty Program offers voluntary warranty protection at an affordable price for water lines in the event of a failure.
Letters from Service Line Warranties of America explaining the program will begin arriving at Bryan water customers’ homes and businesses between October 15 and October 22.
“Homeowners are burdened with many expenses and providing peace of mind in the event of a service line failure is important since repairs could cost thousands of dollars,” says Jayson Barfknecht, Public Works Director. “This program is not only affordable, but the added convenience factor should be very appealing to busy homeowners.”
The NLC Service Line Warranty Program offers protection against normal wear and tear, which is not covered under most traditional homeowners policies. If lines break, leak or clog – SLWA will repair the line using local, licensed contractors who are familiar with local code and can ensure a timely response. This program provides up to $4,000 in coverage with an additional allowance for public street or sidewalk cutting.
“Many homeowners believe their pipes will last forever, but that’s simply not the case,” says Barfknecht.
This program is offered at no cost to the City and no public funds are used to promote or administer the program.
“We are pleased to partner with the City of Bryan to offer our service,” says Brad Carmichael, Vice President of Business Development for SLWA. “SLWA provides first-class customer service with a 24/7 repair line and the use of licensed and thoroughly researched local contractors – keeping dollars in the local economy.
